#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 16 . Back to coats and hats again. Also, I'm so pissed that I accidentally deleted the best one of this group of photos where Charlie was puckered up so hard to give Sunny a kiss and Sun was definitely giving her the cold shoulder. Anyway, today was just a visit to the park in the morning and hanging around the house and in the backyard together this afternoon. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #dogsofinstagram #daddysgirl

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 15 . Fun morning at the Children's museum with my little family! We love the local Children's Museum so much that we bought a membership to it this past October. I can definitely say we've gotten much more than our money's worth out of it so far. Charlie's favorite thing lately are the slides but during this visit she also gravitated towards the art tables and markers. She's super into coloring at home so it was no surprise that she wanted to color the moment she saw the supplies. She plays with the same stuffed moose puppet every time we visit and would play in the water pond for hours if we let her. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #museum #childrensmuseum at Children's Museum & Theatre of Maine

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 13 . A fun visit from Grampy and Gigi today! We went out for lunch then played at the park all afternoon. It was sunny and 75. C went down the slide about 100 times, watched Grampy jump off the swings, and snuggled up with Gigi. A great family day spent out in the sunshine! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #grandparents #slide

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 11 . We broke out the hammock swing today! I spent so many wonderful moments snuggling and playing and nursing Charlie in this swing last year. I was so excited to break it out again this year and it didn't disappoint! C was all smiles swinging and spinning and snuggling. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #swing #hammock

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 10 . Today was the first time Charlie ever spontaneously asked me to take her picture! I'd taken a photo just before dinner of a coloring page C had just finished. Then during dinner she said "Mama take a picture of 'Carlie'!" So of course I did and she cheesed it up hard for the camera. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #cheesin #happiness

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 9 . One last post-dinner snowball before it all melts outside. This girl had a blast eating snow all winter long. . At bedtime tonight, Charlie noticed that the bird in "Big Dog, Little Dog" is the same one as in "Are You My Mother?" She loves when I say, "Good observation!" . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #snow #observations

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 8 . Charlie's newest thing to do with her books is to ask, "What dis page say?" and turn it around so we can read it to her. She only does it with her books that she hasn't yet memorized (which is very few 😆) in an attempt to be able to read them herself. Also, as you can see from these photos, she never. stops. wiggling. Ever! I swear I've only ever seen her stand perfectly still for maybe 2 seconds at a time ever since she learned to walk... she's SUCH a wiggle worm! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #books #raisingreaders

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 6 . I live for nice weather and days at the park with my girl! This park is 5 minutes down the road and a nice open place for C to just run and get tons of energy out. She was all about wearing her new sunglasses today. She's learned how to put them on by herself and slide them to the top of her head when she doesn't want to wear them. We played on the park bench, ran the bases around the muddy baseball diamond, and practiced walking/ running up and down a tiny hill without face-planting. Good day! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #park #sunglasses

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 5 . It's been two days since we visited the cat shelter. We haven't really talked about it much, other than on the day we went. Tonight, Charlie was coloring while I made dinner (like she does almost every night) and turned to a page with a dog and cat. All of a sudden she says, "Fred!" and looks up at me with a big grin on her face. At first I thought she meant the dog like in her Fred and Ted book so I responded with some comment about the dog. She paused in silence for a moment then said "Kitty's name is Fred." It took me a minute then it dawned on me, the first cat we met at the shelter's name was Fred. My jaw dropped. The moment I started talking about the shelter again, Charlie started laughing. She was so happy I'd deciphered what she was talking about. I asked her what color Fred was and without hesitating she answered, "black and white!" Yup! Seriously though, her memory AMAZES me constantly. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #memory #catsofinstagram

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 1 . We played frisbee outside with Sunny in the sunshine today. It's tough to manage both Charlie and Sunny outside because I don't fully trust Sunny around Charlie and all Charlie wants to do is sprint full-speed straight down the hill in the backyard (until she face plants - I'm terrified of her breaking a bone or knocking her teeth out). It's a challenge but, when they're both cooperating, it's fun. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #frisbee #dogsofinstagram

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 30 . We drove to a local apple orchard to see the trees in the wintertime today. In talking with the owner, I learned that these trees are 85 years old! I took lots of photos of Charlie at this orchard last autumn while we picked apples and hope to take photos of her here this spring during the bloom as well! So dreamy! We stayed on the path since the orchard is closed right now but Charlie made a fun little game of cat and mouse where she'd sprint toward the ice and I'd have to go chase her. She also loved waving to the beautiful horse across the street! We'll have to ask its name next time we visit. . After a quick visit to the orchard, we drove up the street to Bradbury Mountain State Park but the trails were super icy so we stayed by the entrance and played on the playground for a little bit even though that was slippery too. I can't wait for warm weather and sunshine so we can visit all these fun places again soon! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #explore #littleadventurer at Hansel's Orchard

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 29 . Whenever something is turned off or broken and Charlie's trying to use it, she adorably states, "Not workin' weally well..." Today it was when she was trying to use her muscles to push open the garage door. I think the odds are against you on that one, babe, but keep setting those goals high! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #muscles #goals

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 28 . When Mike gets home early from work, we almost always go for a family walk. I can't wait until we're can just hop in the stroller and go without getting all bundled up, as the toddler years are in full swing and putting a coat and shoes on is a 10 minute process. 😆 We make it a point to not force C to do things (like put her coat on) and try to get her to do it herself. I always want her to know that she's in charge of her own body, no matter how young she is. That extra 5 minutes each time, even if it'll make us slightly late, is 1000% worth her body autonomy. #raisestrongwomen . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #bodyautonomy

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 27 . We went to the Children's museum today. Charlie's favorite things today were the moose puppet and going down the "giant" slide. She actually requested going there all by herself yesterday when I asked what we should do. "Ride in mama's car! Go to museum! Have fun!" Can't say no to that! When we got home, the light was so dreamy so we looked for pretty rocks in the driveway for a few minutes. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 26 . Today I had Charlie cracking up by putting these sunglasses on my forehead and the nodding my head to make them fall down into place on my nose. I can't even count the number of times she said, "Mama, do it again!" Then she tried it herself a bunch of times but she'd nod her entire upper body so they kept falling on the ground. Eventually she gave up and proceeded to hang off the gate on the stairs. She's totally in the stage where she'll stare you dead in the eyes, do something she knows she's not supposed to and wait for your reaction. 😆 . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #sunglasses #shades

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 25 . I put up Charles swing a few days ago and she is loving every second she's in it! She's also been super into the book "A Pocket for Corduroy" lately so I showed her how to put her hands into her own pockets and she grinned from ear to ear. We sat on the lawn covering Blackie (a beanie baby black bear) with leaves and grass and then shaking him crazily so they'd fall off. It's the little random games we come up with that catch her off guard and make her crack up. I live for those moments daily. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #swinging #pockets

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 16 . Today we just stayed home and did random things. We danced, read, and played with playdoh. . At one point, sitting in the livingroom, I asked Charlie to run into the playroom and grab her kangaroo beanie baby. She listen to what I said, turned around and started to walk, then paused, faced me again and said, "I'll be right back, Mama!" Then she turned around and went to get Kanga. It's so cute how she picks up on all these little phrases we say to her and is now using them correctly. It was just one of those little moments that made me pause and realize how grown up she's getting. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #growingup

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 15 . 🎵"Mud! Mud! I love mud!"🎵 Charlie's first time puddle-jumping was a success. She loved splashing and running through the water. Mud season is almost here so she'd better get used to getting dirty!

Wait for the end to see her pride! This kid lovesss to sing lately! Her favorite songs to sing are: What a Wonderful World Rock-a-bye Baby The Alphabet You Are My Sunshine I love you, You love me (the Barney song) Snuggle Puppy (book by Sandra Boynton) Row Row Row Your Boat . She can sing all of them completely through and if you try to start singing too she'll immediately say "Charlotte sing!" so you'll stop and she can sing it herself. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #singing #singer

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 11 . Daylight Savings Time is going well so far... not. 😆 C's sleep was out of whack today and she's on such a perfect schedule that daylight saving time screwed with it. She slept in pretty late which ended up messing with nap. She needed lots of cuddles this afternoon and would barely let me put her down, even for a second. Thankfully she went to bed on time and hopefully will be back to routine tomorrow! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #whining #fussy

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 10 . Today we played with feathers and balls and talked about gravity and air resistance. Charlie really listens intently when I explain things to her, she makes eye contact and actually stops moving (even if only temporarily) so I try to explain things to her as if she were an older kid or adult. She practiced blowing the feather herself even though it's more like a spitty, drooly raspberry (my goal is to teach her to blow cleanly so she can blow out her birthday candles in a few months) and we compared dropping a feather to dropping a ball. You wouldn't believe how long that entertained her! I hope she never loses that sense of curiosity for how the world works. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #gravity #science

C is super into iSpy books lately and her memory is insane. You show her where something is once and she'll immediately point to it the next time you ask where it is, even days later. She's like that with memorizing books too. She hears something once and can repeat it right back to you, correct pronunciation and all. She's always been so naturally motivated by speech, repeating phrases and memorization tasks. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #iSpy #memory

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 9 . The loving on Lacey is constant. Charlie literally walks up to her and says, "Gimmie kiss, Lacey!" then gives her "one more scratchies on the head." . We went to the park today with my parents and made a snowman using sticks, a leaf, and a quarter... it was quite the sight. Charlie seemed to like it though and gave it a bunch of hugs. . This morning the first thing she said to me was "Read iSpy book with Mama, Daddy, Charlotte - our family!" HEART MELTED! We talk about "our family" a lot lately but that's the first time she's ever listed us like that and labeled it as "our family" completely spontaneously. ❤ . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #momtogs #aheadofthecurve #thebump #jj_its_kids #theartofchildhood #wildandbravelittles #childhoodunplugged #mom_hub #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #candidchildhood #bumpieswhobreastfeed #thehappynow #runwildmychild  #momswithcameras #lifewellcaptured #ourcandidlife #our_everyday_moments #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #magicofchildhood #365project #toddler #myreasonwhy #catsofinstagram #snowman

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 8 . We needed to get some fresh air today after Igot home from work so we took Sunny on a walk. Charlie loves pointing out the giant snowman that one of our neighbors made in their yard. . I also gave C her first real bowl of cereal today, milk and all, and she loved it. She's always loved dry cheerios but her spoon-wielding skills are improving so U thought we'd give the real deal a try. She did great and asked for more twice. I think she was proud of herself which I love to see! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #momtogs #aheadofthecurve #thebump #jj_its_kids #theartofchildhood #wildandbravelittles #childhoodunplugged #mom_hub #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #candidchildhood #bumpieswhobreastfeed #thehappynow #runwildmychild  #momswithcameras #lifewellcaptured #ourcandidlife #our_everyday_moments #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #magicofchildhood #365project #toddler #myreasonwhy #dogsofinstagram #cereal

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 3 . Great weekend with my girl! Today we just did a bunch of random things and errands. We played at home and at the park. C tried desperately to give Lacey a drink from her water bottle. She learned how to make and hold a fish face and sang me the entire alphabet independently. She read her iSpy book about 50 times in a row and kept coming over to me and plopping down in my lap to read with her. This morning I sneakily stood around the corner of the wall and watched her build with legos by herself for a good 10 minutes in her play room. She whispers to herself rather than speaking normally and the moment she noticed I was there, she raised the volume of her voice again. I love to watch her just lost in thought. The Lego tower she built was perfectly symmetrical, both in structure and color... I'm glad I caught it on video. She's always surprising me. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #motherdaughter

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 2 . Charlie got her first pet today to take care of, a betta fish, courtesy of her Grampa and Nana. He's a deep blue color (obviously she picked blue) so his name is BlueBarry. (Initially it was Blueberry, Berry for short but my dad chimed in and said it should be spelled "Barry" ... so here we are.) Charlie loves him already. She ate dinner with him, told him to "have a good nap"at bedtime and loves dragging her finger along the bowl because he peacefully swims and follows it around. A cute little addition to the crew. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #fish #betta

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 1 . After work today, I took C to the craft store in search of a wooden train. No luck on that but she randomly found this horse on a clearance end cap and fell in love with it. She rode it all around the store and then when she discovered it has a sound button that makes the horse whinny, she actually laughed in delight. The whole car ride home she'd press the button, laugh to herself, then kiss the horse on the muzzle. It was so sweet how happy she was with it and giggling all the way home. We also got a play vacuum cleaner that she actually cried over because I was taking too long to hand it to her. Toddler problems. She lovessss when I vacuum and always helps throughout the whole process. I can't wait to get the big vacuum out tomorrow morning and let her use hers independently, alongside me! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #myreasonwhy #horse #horsebackriding #equestrian

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 28 . Charlie corrected Mike on the color of this girl's shirt this morning. He's colorblind so we always said he shouldn't teach her colors. He asked her what color the girls shirt was and, when she didn't respond, he stated that it was yellow. She instantly looked over and said, "green shirt!" 🤣 That's right, C, teach your daddy his colors! I asked him to ask her again just so I could get this photo. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #daddydaughter #colorblind

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 27 . The love is mutual. This girl loves her Daddy and he is wrapped around her little fingers. Daily dancing to "Beauty and the Beast" is always a highlight of any day. Today it was the wind-down song after listening to "Mine, mine, mine" from Pocahontas and dancing around the livingroom like a crazy family. 💕 . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #disney #dancing

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 25 . Home. We tried to take a walk today with Sunny but our road became a sheet of ice so we had to turn back early. . I kissed Charlie's cheek during dinner tonight and she gave me my first completely unprompted "I love you, Mama!" My life is complete! 😍😍😍 Then we got into a contest taking turns of who could say I love you more. We went back and forth for a good 20 times before she gave up on me and told me she heard Lacey purring. (Lacey likes to literally sit on the table during dinner and inch closer and closer to our plates... doesn't matter how many times I put her back on the floor or spray her with the water bottle. Trust me, I've tried. 🙄) . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #home #dogsofinstagram

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 24 . Charlie got this little doll stroller as a Christmas gift but was far too wild with it when she first got it. She would run and face plant every time she tried to push it. Thankfully we tried it again today and she's a bit better about just walking while pushing it. She was all smiles pushing her baby around and would keep saying, "Get in there, baby. Needs the football on the head (to use as a pillow). Needs a blanket all cozy." She wheeled her all around and had a blast but definitely wasn't very gentle 😆 The doll would fall out and I'd say "Oh no, baby's crying!" to which C would respond, "Wah wah!" and then "Shh shh shh... all better!" as she shushed her upside down... We'll have to work on that before she becomes a big sister someday. (No, I'm not pregnant!) . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #littlemama #doll

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 22 . We were only home today for about 1.5 hours (other than naptime) total so having this potty in the car is a 100% necessity! Today was actually the first time we've used a potty that wasn't a real toilet. I figured since spring is coming and I plan to take Charlie lots of outdoor places, we need a portable potty too since not everywhere has one. Thankfully she loves it just as much as the real potty, even pulled over on the side of the road in the back of the car 🤣 . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #pottytraining

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 21 . Today we went to The Point community center and I can't even explain how much fun Charlie had playing with the other kids. She didn't even care about me. She legitimately made friends with a 4 year old girl named Adelaide and they sprinted around together chasing each other, playing ball, being silly for over an hour. It was like they were best friends. I just sat against the wall and basically watched. The girl was so good with C (her parents said they think she thought Charlie was around her age because they were fairly close in height) She'd run around and Charlie would chase her literally yelling, "Adelaide!!!! Where could Adelaide be?! I found her!" and then they'd switch and Charlie would be the chase-e. My eyes actually welled up with tears at one point because it was the first time I've ever really seen Charlie deliberately play WITH another kid and not just parallel play beside them. C legit repeated, "Thanks for playing Adelaide, see you another day" as we left and talked about her the entire car ride home and all throughout dinner. My little girl is growing up and randomly making friends, like kids do in all of 3 seconds, and it couldn't make me happier. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #growingup

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 20 . Today we played with pompoms. Charlie's favorite part was just shaking the jar and making them "explode" everywhere. She also loved when I'd hide a bunch in one hand, ask her to pick which hand they were in, and say "POOF" as I threw them in her face... oh the things toddlers find funny. . C also had her 18 month well-child check-up today (at 19.5 months) and is still at the top of the charts for both height and weight. The doctor was impressed that she's fully daytime potty-trained and C went pee on the potty both at the beginning and at end of our appointment. She loves searching for the potty in any new place we go. She got her last vaccines (until she's 5) today so we're good to go, other than the annual flu shot, for a few years! The two things Charlie HATED were getting her head circumference measured and getting her ears checked, both of which have never bothered her before. She said "all done" to a lot of things but we powered through the mini tantrums and everything checked out perfectly. She was chatting up a storm with her pediatrician who said she could easily pass for 3 years old with her vocabulary and speaking in full sentences (not to mention how tall she is). As we were leaving, Charlie looked directly at the doctor and goes "Bye, Dr. Ryan. See you another day Dr. Ryan." 😆 We all cracked up. So proud of my sweet babe and so happy that she's healthy and thriving! 💕 . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #pompoms

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 19 . We painted C's first birdhouse today. Charlie painted 95% of it and then I just filled in the blank spaces with random colors. I love how messy and colorful it came out! Classic toddler painting and we had a blast doing it. I hung it outside on a tree after it dried so we can see it out the livingroom and playroom windows. Maybe a bird family will use it this spring! Later at dinnertime, I asked Charlie what we painted today. She took a good 10 seconds to think quietly and then a huge grin spread across her face and she said "House! House for birdies!" 💛🐦 . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #bird #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #birdhouse

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 17 . Today was nice enough to go for a walk. Hopefully the weather will start warming up again soon so we can be more consistent with our walks like we used to be. Today a couple of the neighborhood dogs joined us which happens fairly often. Sunny loves having a little "pack" and Charlie says hi to the dogs over and over and talks about them the whole time. . We also made Loopy a lego house and danced to lots of music. I sing "What A Wonderful World" to Charlie daily and today the original version, sung by Louis Armstrong, just so happened to come on while we danced. Charlie was absolutely amazed that it was "our song" and laid her head right on my shoulder to snuggle dance through the whole thing. She mouthed all the words with me and then requested it about 10 more times in a row, "World one more time please, Mama" 😍 Melt. My. Heart!!! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #whatawonderfulworld

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 14 . Valentine's Day 💕 I had to work so we took these photos late in the day right before dinner. Charlie helped me with the balloons and actually left them alone for the most part which surprised me. Gave me flashbacks of last year when we took Valentine's day photos in the exact same spot but she was covered in my lipstick kisses 😘 . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #valentine #myreasonwhy #catsofinstagram

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 12 . This afternoon, we ate cheese sticks and danced until we were sweating. Charlie colored while I made dinner. I love watching her get engrossed in certain activities while I get to be a fly on the wall. . Tonight as we were reading bedtime stories, she was nursing and placed her hand on my chest so I repositioned it over my heart and explained what a heartbeat was to her. Then I asked her if she could feel it going "thu-thump thu-thump thu-thump" and she thought my heartbeat imitation was so funny that she burst out laughing and spit milk all over me 😆 so of course I did it for the next 10-minutes straight to get her cracking up before bed. There is no better sound than hearing the unrestrained laughter of your own child, even if it gets her riled up and silly before bedtime. 100% worth it every single time. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #heartbeat #myreasonwhy

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 11 . Charlie got a little cut on her index finger today from a book or something. She actually started bleeding a little bit so I put a bandaid on it. Her first bandaid for something other than her vaccines at the pediatrician. She was super nervous of it at first and wouldn't let me anywhere near her, let alone her finger. So I did what any mom would do and put a bandaid on my own finger. C suddenly wanted one for herself... shocker. She let me put it on her and all she could say for the next 20 minutes was "Charlie has a bandaid. Mama has a bandaid. Both have bandaids!" I've learned that showing her things or modeling them myself in addition to verbally explaining them to her works absolute wonders. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #bandaid #booboo

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 10 . She still had bedhead from nap and immediately asked for "Charlie's camera" I love that she enjoys playing with it so much. Today she threw it though and I could've sworn she broke it (not that it's a big deal since it's a "trash" camera but then she wouldn't have it to play with anymore), thankfully she didn't but we took a little break with it and the tears ensued. She gets over things so quickly though, especially when I explain why her actions have a certain consequence. Still working on that not throwing thing... . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #littlephotographer #myreasonwhy

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 9 . Oda came to visit today and brought Charlie's furry cousins too ❤ Carl (or "Carlo as C calls him) is so much bigger than last time we saw him, but still a love bug at 6 months old, and Sophie (aka "Dodo") just wants to be sung to while replacing all the lyrics with her name, per usual. Charlie's favorite part was telling Carl "No, Carlo!" when he'd try to lick her face. She said it all afternoon, even after they'd gone home. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #oda #dogsofinstagram

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 8 . If you ask her what she's drawing or what she wants you to draw, she'll almost always say either hearts or babies. She's actually not far off on the hearts. ❤ Also, Mike plunked her in the pack n play just to be silly and she spent the next 10 minutes in there perfectly content among the mess. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #drawing #hearts

#CharlieCheeseFries365 February 7 . First time this year I've forgotten a photo until bedtime! So tonight it was a quick snap of C reading/singing "What a Wonderful World" after tubby time. I swear within the last 3 days she's started singing all sorts of songs, especially ones that we've sung to her a million times. She actually carries a tune, holds notes, and changes her pitch and tempo for different parts. I absolutely loveee it! So far she's singing: I'm a Little Teapot What a Wonderful World Snuggle Puppy You Are My Sunshine My Bonney Lies Over the Ocean and most of the alphabet ❤ . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #singing #raisingreaders

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 6 . Charlie calls this blazer her "fancy" and likes to wear it while she plays her keyboard. Today was all about music and dancing and singing.

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 3 . I dragged out a 10+ year old camera today, that I had back in high school, for Charlie to play with. Initially, I was wary of her being too rough with it, until I realized I haven't touched it in almost a decade. I think I just get super sentimental about cameras and things that mean so much to me, especially things that have helped me preserve memories over many years. Anyway, after I took a deep breath and mentally "let go" of my anxiety, I just let Charlie have at it and she absolutely LOVED it. She was so focused on it and when I'd try to reach my hand in to show her something, she'd immediately sort of panic and ask "May I hold it please?!" while hugging it closer to herself. She started holding it up to her face and pointing it at us saying, "Cheese Mama! Cheese, Daddy! Cheese, Lacey! "Cheese, book!" etc. She grinned ear-to-ear the whole time. I can only hope that she grows to value creativity and find the beauty in everyday life. I find so much joy in the small moments with her every single day and photography is my way to honor these days with her, the days when I'm in awe of every little thing she does. Will that ever change? I hope not. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #photography #myreasonwhy

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 2 . Saturday morning snuggles with my little bookworm are the best. She now specifically requests to read to me herself. Sometimes I'll even offer to read to her and she'll say "YOU read book to Mama" (she says you for "I") and prefer to read aloud to me instead. Books are 100% her favorite possessions. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #bookworm #raisingreaders

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 February 1 . Today we played with a balloon that was left over from our gender reveal for Charlie 2 years ago this month. She likes to grab it with both fists so thankfully I under-inflated it. We bounced it around off the floor, ceiling, our heads, just about everything else. Charlie even bounced it off Lacey at one point, trying to "pass" it to her. Thankfully Lacey was in a playful mood and running around chasing the balloon alongside us. Also, I just love Charlie's enthusiasm in this photo; she looks like a little cheerleader. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #balloon #
